The Silence Of Severance by Wes Markin – Book Review.              @markinwes                            @cazvinbooks                    @TheSilenceOfSeverance


Your wedding day should be the most unforgettable day of your life. And this is one wedding that will never be forgotten.

When a police officer’s wedding day ends in brutality and chaos, DCI Michael Yorke is pulled away from his own wedding and into the bloodiest chain of events Wiltshire has ever seen.

As a heatwave tightens its grip on Salisbury, Yorke and his team face a race against time to find the most sinister and intelligent adversary they have ever faced. Christian Severance. But as the team chase Severance into the shadows of a dark past, Yorke’s own history starts to drag itself into the present. 

Can they stop Christian Severance before he achieves the unthinkable? And will Yorke survive the revelations that claw at him from the darkness?



The DCI Yorke Series:

#1 One Last Prayer for the Rays ​:​ 

#2 The Repenting Serpent​​:

#3 The Silence of Severance​​:



This is #3 in the DCI Michael Yorke series, I found it can easily be read as a stand-alone.

I was hooked right from the start . A police officers wedding end is a bloody, chaotic mess… and DCI Michael Yorke is called in to investigate.

A suspect is identified as Christian Severance and so the chase begins. As the murders and mutilations continue the tension builds! Can they stop him before he carries out his plan? 

This is not a book you can leave as you really do need to know what’s going to happen next in this nail biting thriller. With lots of twists this is dark and utterly compelling.

Thank you to Caroline Vincent and Bits about Books for the opportunity to participate in this blog tour, for the promotional materials and a free copy of the ebook  in exchange for my honest, unbiased review.
